"For a relatively small state, Maryland comes up big when it comes to sports heritage," says Shawn Herne, Executive Director. "From the local legends depicted in our Mt. Rushmore display to the left to the championship teams and athletes featured here, Maryland sporting tradition is second to none. Champions offers 17 snapshots into the athletes and teams representing our "Old Line" state, celebrating their great achievements and their glory."
In addition to this newly curated exhibit, the museum will celebrate with a signed, limited edition (200) poster featuring art of the Baltimore Orioles 1983 World Series Championship Trophy and the Baltimore Colts Super Bowl V Lombardi Trophy, signed by Baltimore Colt legend, Jim O'Brien and Orioles Hall of Famer, Scott McGregor. The posters ($125 + shipping) will be available at the museum and online starting September 10, 2020 at 10AM.

The museum will then announce the availability of the commemorative poster the following day. The exhibit officially opens to the public on Wednesday, September 16th.
Featured teams, athletes and artifacts in the CHAMPIONS exhibit include Baltimore's Negro League Team(s), of which there were two; the 1958 Baltimore Colts who captured their first championship – and which was often referred to as the "greatest game ever played"; 2000 Baltimore Ravens, winners of Super Bowl XXXV, the team's first title; the 2001 Maryland Terrapins Men's Basketball National Championship, Johns Hopkins University Lacrosse, winners of 44 national championships and Kimmie Meissner, a 2020 U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame inductee and figure skating champion, among many others, whose contributions to Maryland's, and the nation's, distinguished sports anthology is deserving of this new CHAMPIONS exhibit.
